Mario Chat / Re: New Mario Movie (Not Joke)

If you're reading this and it's your life dream to make a film adaptation of a video game, stop. Do not do it. Make your film script but just be inspired by whatever it was you were uncreative enough to steal. And that gives you so much more freedom to do things besides shove your fanon into other people's faces, other people who probably have their own fanon that yours [dukar]s all over. Turn it into an original scenario, replace all the characters with your own. It's probably already distanced enough from what you were going to do an adaptation of anyway. Make an adaptation and you will inevitably alienate people who don't know the source material, while disappointing people who do. So make something else and design it to be watched, where everything in it is there to make it a better movie. Such that turning it into a video game would be a travesty.

Quoting this for prosperity.

Also because it kind of applies to adaptations and fantard [dukar] in general, not just video games. I got hit with this revelation a long time ago and I continue to be amazed at fellow grown-ass creatives (sometimes people upwards of ten years older than me, as Bob Chipman up there has demonstrated!) who somehow still haven't figured it out.

Kinda relevant: It seems good ol' Bob Chipman has written an unsurprisingly pathetic Mario movie pitch of his own. Read and recoil in horror.

You have pretty abysmal taste in voices.

Also, why the spoiler?

(cost 69 coins and healed 69 HP. Gross)

I only just recently uncovered that this is a visual pun.

ムク (muku) looks like a number 69. :P

Toad got promoted.

He became a captain and went off on his own. Hence 'Captain Toad'. The Blue Toad got promoted to Peach's attendant in his place and is now the new 'Toad'.

I have a feeling that nothing is actually going to come of this. Much like that 21 Jump Street/Men in Black crossover they apparently discovered.

Hell, at first I thought this was made up. Now that Sony's hacked, anybody can just pop up and claim to have found some sort of weird project in their database without citing a source, and Internet Journalism™ will just go along with it anyway for clicks.

For the same reason Mario says "Mex-i-co!" in Mario 64 and the Yoshies sing "The @$$ho~le" in Yoshi's Story.

I've personally spoken to Metal Man. He says Kyle Orland completely went off the deep end after the site was left in his hands. The poker thing is dead-ass serious.

Now that so much information has been consolidated into sites like the Mario Wiki, people have less reason to scour every Google result in search of information.

It still pains me that it's everyone's primary source. It's still terribly written, terribly organized and rife with baseless speculation and "trivia" that's not remotely even fact. I'm ok with having one place full of consolidated information, but it could at least be better-delivered and better-researched.

I think another big issue is the fact that people used to come to TMK for information, but now keep going to Mario Wiki instead (even though people with brains can tell Wikis are actually really stupid in practice!).

I've been trying to convince Deezer to give the Mariopedia a bit of an overhaul for this reason. I feel like it can and should be able to stand toe-to-toe with Mario Wiki at the very least. I really do want people to come here for Mario info again. There's gotta be a way to propel ourselves back into the average Internet surfer's eye, right?

I'd hesitate to call a green-faced Mr. Belvedere "Bowser".

I remember the Prima guide for Double Dash calling them brother and sister, but you know how those are just pinnacles of informational accuracy, right?

Them being siblings sounds like of those things that people conjecturally assume, like Wario being Mario's cousin or other such nonsense.
